is there some trick to removing the dashpad on a 71-73 ? (maybe the previous owner superglued the thing on.) any help would be appreciated.

Nope, just remove the {going by memory} 8? screws, lift up and pull towards you. The front is held by spring clips. The foam pad and the metal dash cover comes off as one.

Sometimes it sticks by the glass a bit.Box cutter sometimes helps cut thru the adhesive.
